Environment Agency Cite Transition Initiatives and Totnes Pound Among Its 50 Things That Will Save The Planet.
Lists of things you can do to ‘save the planet’ often get stuck at lightbulb changing and thermostat twiddling, failing to engage with the deeper challenges. The Environment Agency brought together 25 leading thinkers in the green movement, including Tony Juniper, Jonathan Porritt and David Boyle, and asked them for their 50 things that will save the planet. The list is deep and rich, and Transition Towns appear in No.8, and the Totnes Pound gets an honorary mention in No.6. Although their enthusiasm for importing solar panels from China and for carbon capture and storage might not get the thumbs up from this end, it is still a very enlightening read.
